AOL Stylist and Saks presented Fashion’s Night Out @ Saks Fifth Avenue| Somerset Collection, Troy MI. The event, dubbed “Couples of Substance and Style” honored couples for their business acumen, philanthropy and fashion sense. The proceeds benefited Beaumont Children’s Hospital, through the Children’s Miracle Network.
Eighteen couples were presented by Chuck Bennett, Detroit News society columnist and director of Hour Detroit Magazine’s annual “Best Dressed” issue. Every couple made a very fashionable showing and some of the honorees had been featured in past “Best Dressed” issues. We were invited by honoree’s Don and Kiko Davis, a very popular and fashionable couple. Kiko was featured in the 2008 “Best Dressed” issue, wearing a one-of-a-kind Franklin Rowe wedding dress, she designed. Kiko’s typically best dressed at every event and this night was no different. She made a stunning appearance in an ultra chic Stella McCartney, fall 2011 color-blocked stretch cotton fitted dress, with bold gold drop earrings, a matching bangle and strappy black patent peep-toe platforms.
The event took place in the Men’s Shop, where the DJ skillfully mixed dance club and top 40 hits. We entered to win prizes from the AOL/iPad Kiosk and in return got Saks Fifth Avenue gift cards, with which we promptly shopped. The Hour Detroit Magazine/AOL Stylelist red carpet photo wall was crowded with the fabulous and fashionable all evening. Chanel makeup stations offered attendees high fashion makeovers. Food stations in and around the Men’s Department offered delicious treats including mushroom stuffed ravioli with cheese sauce, crunchy bruschetta with roasted tomato and smoked salmon hors d’oeuvres. White wine flowed and conversation reached a fever pitch, even as the the presentation began.
I was comfy and cute in a black Rachael by Rachael Roy, “24 Hour” dress with a pair of strappy, crystal embellished Sam Edelman ‘Quintessa’ sandals. I greatly enjoyed the presentation and had a great time throughout the the evening. Later, we had a wonderful dinner at Ocean Prime in Troy, MI. This was my first Fashion’s Night Out experience and I can’t wait for next year.
